Kidney Foundation Car Donation

Maybe you've seen billboards, heard ads or read about them online and now you're wondering: How do I donate my car to charity? Well, it's as simple as 1, 2, 3!

Or not

The first step is to call Kidney Cars at 800.488.CARS (2277) and tell us you have a vehicle you'd like to donate to the National Kidney Foundation. Or you can visit our donation page here: and fill out the donation form.


Second, make an appointment with Kidney Cars to come pick up your car. You can set the time that works best with your calendar.


Finally, the kidney auto experts will collect your car and all the necessary documents from you. From there, the car will be sold, with proceeds going to the National Kidney Foundation to support research and support for kidney patients, as well as ongoing support for kidney donation legislation and services.

Things to know

Here are some things to keep in mind when donating your car:

You can donate any vehicle you have a title deed to, whether it's running or not.

You can donate cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, boats, dirt bikes, motocross bikes, ATVs, construction equipment, farm equipment (with serial number), and personal watercraft.

If you can't find your car's address but still want to donate it, call the donation hotline and they'll help you get an alternative address.

Tax reductions are specific to each vehicle and are based on the individual selling price of the vehicle. You will need to contact the IRS to determine if your vehicle is deductible. Kidney Cars will send you a confirmation of the sale price for tax purposes

Why donate?

Charitable donations represent a significant portion of the funds that the Kidney Foundation uses to advance research and support treatment and improve the quality of life of patients with kidney disease. Your donation makes a difference to millions of patients across the country. Research is underway to find a cure for kidney disease, support legislation that facilitates living organ donation, and affordable education for kidney disease patients. These procedures help improve the lives of those suffering from this life-threatening disease.

Your generosity makes a difference. Please donate today.
